    Le Président Mitterrand aimait beaucoup l'Égypte. Pensée fidèle pour le Président Mitterrand. Je serais curieux de connaître le sentiment de François Mitterrand sur le Président Obama. Je pense que le Président aurait une analyse fine de cet homme que la société américaine a porté jusqu'à la Maison Blanche. Avec l'accession du Président Obama à la présidence des USA, c'est une nouvelle page de l'histoire de leur pays que les Américains ont écrite et une autre qu'ils ont définitivement tournée avec brio et courage.

    Yes, a well found interpretation: the pyramid as a metaphor to the steep climb that awaits us all, and B.O. especially. The president looks like ready for the hard work: he has on a blue collar working outfit... ;-)
